Happy Labour Weekend!
On Wednesday, Hiltrun and I candled the penguin eggs. We found an overall fertility rate of 96% which is very high. We put this down to having experienced breeders, although both of our young girls here had 2 fertile eggs.
The work continues. This weekend we have been planting Astelias (native forest flax) and ferns. It is great to see the forest floor greening up again. The Variable Oyster Catchers and Black Backed gulls have laid their eggs. I have planted my tomato plants and the bees are active on the cherry trees.
Have a great week!
